Yes, I’m afraid that it’s dead. I heard nothing from the guy and at this point I never will. It’s a crying shame, it looked like a nice print. Whoever donated, can PM me the date of the donation and the email linked to your paypal account so I can identify you and I’ll see that you get refunded, in alternative I can offer a 35mm scan of a different film. I have two in the works that have never been scanned before, the scans have already been delivered to me (no more vanishing scanners), but they are still in a raw format and will need some work.
If I take a while to reply don’t worry, I’m just not very active on OT, trying to keep up with a busy life and for some reason I rarely receive email notifications from OT, but sometimes I remember to log in.
I’m sorry to hear that the project was unable to be finished due to circumstances beyond your control. I would have enjoyed seeing the differences between the 35mm and the home releases, plus I always love an excuse to watch Face/Off!
Just curious, but in these situations, do scanners at least return your film? I’m worried the answer is no, which is awful.
